Learn at Sprout!
Unfortunately, we are not running Sprout in Spring 2024, but check back in the future for updates!
Program Essentials

When: Three Saturdays in the fall for 9-12th graders and in the spring for 7-8th graders.
What: Sprout is a three-week program held online. Classes will be offered in four time blocks. Core classes meet all three weeks of the program and electives meet just once. Choose whichever classes interest you, from a catalog of classes all taught by Yale students! Take a look at last Spring Sprout's course catalog to get an idea of the types of classes taught at our program.

The three weeks of this program give students a chance to delve deeper into certain topics. As such, attendance at all three weeks of the program is mandatory. If you are unable to attend all program dates, please email us to see if you may still attend, or consider instead attending Splash, our one day program. We reserve the right to cancel the registrations of students whose schedules do not include classes on all three program days.

How: Spring Sprout student registration is currently not open. Like us on Facebook to stay up to date on upcoming news and programs!

Where: Yale University


Program Registration:

Step-By-Step Student Registration Guide:
1. Phase 1: The Program Lottery:
This period is currently CLOSED! In this phase, students can sign up for the program lottery (P1) by clicking the link at the top of this page, filling out the forms, and then creating a lottery ticket. Students should receive confirmation of their entrance into the lottery and will find out if they have been randomly selected for a spot in our program a couple of days after the end of P1. Note: students should not attempt to enter the lottery multiple times -- duplicate submissions will be deleted.

2. Phase 2: The Class Lottery:
This period is currently CLOSED! All students who have been randomly admitted into the program will rank the classes they want to take. They will be able to look through the courses, star the ones they’re interested in, and rank 4 classes they would like to take for each time block. They can change this at any time before Phase 2 ends. At the end of this period, students will find out which classes they got into.
3. Phase 3: First-Come-First-Serve:
This period is currently CLOSED! After class assignments are made at the end of P2, some students may have empty slots in their schedules, as some popular classes may not have enough room to accommodate all students. Any student who does not have a full schedule will have an opportunity to fill any empty time slots with classes that still have available space. Instructions for this phase will be emailed at the close of Phase 2.
